Plans for Fall 2020 Courses

Office of the Provost

Dear Students:

The University is currently developing plans for reopening safely in the fall. To comply with the State of New Jersey’s health and safety guidelines for universities, we plan to offer many classes in a hybrid format, which includes both in-person instruction combined with some online instruction. This allows students options for on campus instruction, and makes it possible for us to have socially-distanced in-person classes. We will also continue to offer some classes in a 100% online format, so that students who need that option have access to it.

There are actually five different options, or MODALITIES, for how classes will be delivered, three of which have on campus, face to face components. You can learn more about these modalities on the Registrar’s web page: Course Instruction Fall 2020.

As we go through the planning process, we are making adjustments to room assignments and modalities in the schedule. Therefore, we are temporarily closing registration from Friday, July 3 until Friday, July 10.

Meanwhile, if you see changes occurring to your fall class schedule in NEST you should know these changes are not final, and you will have time later to review your schedule and speak to your advisor about any changes you wish to make.

The Registrar’s Office will notify you when the fall schedule is finalized.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this planning process.

Stay safe and healthy this summer.

Willard P. Gingerich
Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs
